6:30 p.m., Monday, Jan. 21, Conference Center

New and recent graduates of Penn State New Kensington can connect with fellow Penn Staters at the next monthly meeting of the Alle-Kiski Society at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Jan. 21, in the campus Conference Center.

Alumni who can’t make the meeting can still exercise their Penn State spirit at the society’s “Alumni Social and Basketball Game,” on Saturday, Feb 9. Graduates in the area are invited to cheer on the New Kensington Lions against Penn College at 3 p.m. in the campus Athletics Center. The social follows at 5 p.m. at Woodpeckers Bar and Grill, located adjacent to the campus on State Route 780 and Myers Drive in Upper Burrell. The social includes free food and cash bar.

The Alle-Kiski Society, the campus-based chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association, engages in various projects throughout the year, interacting with other Penn State campuses and current students by social and fundraising events and other networking activities. Social events include a reception for student award winners and a bus trip to a Penn State football game. In addition, the alumni group co-sponsors campus events including the semi-annual Alumni Breakfast socials in the spring for local alumni.

Penn State alumni, students, parents, and friends from the Penn State New Kensington service area -- Westmoreland, Allegheny, Butler, Armstrong and Indiana counties -- are encouraged to re-connect with the University and campus by attending meetings. For more information on the society and its events, call 724-334-6049 or send an email to uxw1@psu.edu.
